Online voting is also known as Electronic Proxy Appointment (EPA). Instead of filling in a Proxy Card with your instructions on how you wish your shares to be voted at a General Meeting of Shareholders, you can send in your voting instructions electronically.
Shareholders and participants in the Britvic Share Incentive Plan (“SIP”) who hold shares in InterContinental Hotels Group PLC, may cast their votes electronically for certain General Meetings of InterContinental Hotels Group PLC.
Online voting allows shareholders or participants in the Britvic SIP holding shares in InterContinental Hotels Group PLC to vote online through our registrar's websites. To vote online will only take a few minutes and is as secure as voting by post.
To vote online is cost effective and, over time, lowers the impact on the environment because less printed material is needed.
If you are registered with Shareview or are registered to receive e-communications you should access the following link www.shareview.co.uk and will need to have available:
If you are not registered with Shareview and would like to vote online using information you have received in the post (either on a Form of Proxy or for Britvic SIP participants, on a Form of Instruction), you should access the following link www.sharevote.co.uk and will need to have available:
- Voting ID
- Task ID
- Shareholder Reference Number
Please note that by using e vote you instruct a proxy to vote on your behalf on any poll which may come before the meeting.
Q. How secure is it?
A. For your electronic voting instruction to be valid, you have to log in to Equiniti's voting site using either your Shareview access number and password (if you are already registered), or the unique Authentication Reference Number printed on the voting instruction card sent to you by post.
Using the website is at least as secure as voting by post. When you vote, Equiniti's secure site encrypts the details of your instruction before they are sent over the internet.
Q. Can I change my vote?
A. Yes – at any time up until the closing time of the service. To change your voting instruction you just need to log back in to the voting site and record your new choices.
Q. How do I know if it has worked?
A. You will receive an electronic acknowledgement of your vote from Equiniti at the end of the voting process.
Q. Who can I speak to if I have a problem with voting online?
A. You can call the Equiniti helpline on 0371 384 2132.
